I think the reason you won't see Walmart taking alcohol out of it's locations is money. Firearms/ammo sales and vape sales are minuscule compared to the revenue generated by alcohol products. Walmart is probably not sacrificing much revenue(comparatively) when they take firearms and ammo or vapes off the shelves.

Anyone with a lick of common sense knows Walmart does not give a darn about the well being of their customers. It is all about political posturing and the all mighty dollar.
Same reason they won't stop selling smokes.

Freakin hypocrites.

Although we've been talking about all things that are harmful I hasn't really thought about these two items and ammunition together.

Alcohol is out in the open on shelves. So is shotgun shells.

Tobacco products and handgun/rifle ammunition is behind locked cabinets. However, there is a difference between these two products. Tobacco products can still be bought at one or two of the front registers and one just has to ask the cashier for what they want and they turn around and get it right then. I think. I don't really know for sure, but I've seen others do that. I've never bought any tobacco products, so I don't have first hand knowledge.

Anyway, as we all know, getting into the ammo cabinet is a gigantic PITA most of the time.

Where I'm going with this is, while they probably haven't been selling too much ammunition, and if it is a money issue, they might sell more, like alcohol if they would put it out on a shelf like they do with the alcohol. I don't think that would ever happen at Walmart, but Academy has quite a bit of ammo out like this and they don't seem to have any issues.

Today WalMart announced it will stop selling e-cigs (once current stock is gone). Sounds familiar. What next, alcohol or tobacco?
Well, as you have seen on TV, e-cigs have killed what? 100 people in the last few years...
Im not sure if you are in agreement with not selling of e-cigs" if so then you dont want to know the statistics on alcohol/tobacco products. Not trying to be disrespectful at all, just confused. If a person IMHO wants to drink/smoke its up to them they know the risks, as far as Guns they dont shoot anyone without Someone committing the act.
I wish there was a sarcasm font! Teen smoking and adult smoking is down. Ecigs is a much better choice then smoking regular cigarettes. The teens vaping would be smoking if you took the vapes away. Watch.
2nd, the ones getting sick is because there is no regulation. Thats been a know issue in that market for what, ten years now? Smoking the THC OIL- not good to put oil in the lungs. It coats and traps bacteria in the lungs.
The bulk of those with significant lung damage is caused by vaping CBD and THC that is not intended to be vaped!
You can market rope as tow rope but somebody will hang themselves with it! You cannot fix stupid, why punish those that are using it as intended!
That and the other physical damage like popcorn lung.

The wife wants to grab a few things at wally world when I get off work today, I'll let ya'll know if they throw me out for open carrying!
Why would you take a chance of them telling you that your not allowed back with a firearm at all? I don’t agree with their policy, but it is their business. I wouldn’t want to take the. Vance of being told I can’t come back with a firearm.
You really think they would remember you?
Sounds like you’ve never met Mr. Carlson. ;-)
